Believing in Dafa Benefits Older People
(Minghui.org) There is a village about six miles south of the county where I live. There is often a good farmers market held there.
After breakfast one day, I decided I should go to the farmers market on my electric bike with some truth-clarifying materials.
After I finished distributing my materials, I headed home. On the road I passed an older lady. She might not know the truth, so I turned around to talk to her. I asked her if she knew about Falun Dafa.
She replied, “Yes, I know Falun Dafa very well. I heard about it 10 years ago. I am already 90 years old. But look at me, I am healthy and energetic, just because I believe in Falun Dafa.”
I was surprised, because she did not look as if she was 90. I thought she was in her 70s.
She said to me, “Ten years ago, someone told me ‘Falun Dafa is good,’ ‘Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’ and that one would achieve good health if they repeated those words often. After that I began saying them every day whenever I have time.”
She was excited and continued, “What a miracle. When I pick up firewood, I say ‘Falun Dafa is good.' I can stand up with a bundle of firewood with ease.”
She gave me a thumbs up and said, “Nowadays, people believe in many things and I believe this. Do you know what I mean?” “Yes, ma'am. I know,” I replied. She then added, “What I believe is the best.”
We had been walking and were now in front of her door. She invited me to come in and visit a while longer.
She lived in a one-story house with five rooms. Her son lives in the three rooms on the east side and she stays in the two rooms on the west side. Her rooms are separated by a wall and she has her own private entrance. She said although her son is nearby she lives independently.
Her part of the house was clean and organized. When I left she offered me scallions that she was growing, I declined and told her I had plenty at home.
I had just met this fine lady but she treated me like a dear friend because I practice Falun Dafa, and she had benefited from her supporting Dafa.
She said I could come by and visit anytime and when I am shopping at the market, if it begins to rain, I can find shelter with her.
I thought about this delightful, fortunate lady on my ride back home. I hope more people discover Falun Dafa.
